Beautiful by Whose Standard?

Beautiful YOU!

 

Do you struggle with your weight?  Do you have more bad hair days than good? Do you feel your lips are too big, or your hips are too wide? In a world of supermodels and plastic surgery it has become obvious there is a coveted standard of beauty that society says we as women should be “striving” to achieve.  However, what the world does not realize is that there is no one standard of beauty. Each of us was uniquely designed after the image and likeness of our Heavenly Father.  He is perfect in every way, and despite the imperfections you think you see in yourself, He never makes mistakes. Can’t quite master “the look” they said was in for spring?  Maybe you weren’t supposed to. Let the world see the beautifully, unique creation called YOU. Allow your beauty to shine, because when God created you He made a wonderful masterpiece and put you on display for the entire world to see!

                                                                                                             

Think About It

Take a moment and look at yourself in the mirror. As you view yourself meditate on these three things:

  • Despite what the world says, the only true standard of beauty is found in God’s eyes and He has already declared you a wonderful masterpiece!
  • God doesn’t make mistakes
  • You are uniquely beautiful and it deserves to be celebrated!

Take Action

Now that you know where your standard of beauty truly lies, it’s time to celebrate yourself.

  1. Up until this point what qualities about yourself have you regretted because it/they don’t particularly look like the world’s standard of beauty?
  2. For each item listed above, list at least one thing you will begin doing today to celebrate those qualities. It could be anything from having the confidence to walk in front of the crowd of people you avoided for so long for fear of what they might say, to taking the extra time to spruce yourself up, simply because you are celebrating the beautiful masterpiece called YOU!

    I loved the blog post entitled “Beautiful YOU!”

    I’ve always believed that we should rely on the inner beauty God gives us far more than the outer beauty we try to give ourselves.
